*   Mawer Fund returns are calculated after management fees and operating expenses have been deducted. In comparison, index returns do not incur management fees or operating expenses.

**  Mawer Global Equity Benchmark History:

Oct: 2009: MSCI World (net)
Oct 2016: MSCI ACWI (net)

Rationale for Change: MSCI ACWI (net) Index is a better representation of the mandate in our opinion. Past benchmark does not include Emerging Markets whereas the fund has holdings in these markets consistent with its prospectus and investment policy statement.
